Christmas has come early as the Lips have two new releases hitting stores tomorrow in the US, Tuesday the 18th. First up is the magnificent deluxe edition CD/DVD of Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, which includes a CD/DVD which features the entire album in 5.1 surround sound. Sound & Vision magazine gave the release 5 stars and said that “liberated from stereo, Yoshimi is now a better album, period.”

Continued… The deluxe edition CD/DVD also comes with extras like “The Making of Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots 5.1,” six Lips videos, a trailer for the upcoming Christmas On Mars movie, and six rare audio bonuses, including “If I Go Mad,” “Up Above The Daily Hum,” and two versions each “Do You Realize” and “Yoshimi Pt. 1.”

And if that weren’t enough, the Ego Tripping At The Gates Of Hell EP is out in the US tomorrow. It features two mixes of the song ‘Ego Tripping’ and four brand new tracks, including ‘A Chance At Christmas,’ which is the band’s newly written festive track about spreading more peace and love when, er, it’s not Christmas.
